I'm not surprised. I'll also not be surprised when we make it out of September 5-0 and not in the top 5. The Alabama - Southern Cal lovefest is at full throttle but some new media darling, or even Oklahoma will start to leap us each week, "as LSU struggles without Tyrann Mathieu" or "is still in disarray after the BCS Title game."
I just made a huge mistake. Big.
For the first time in ages, I went to ESPN's site to check out the Thursday night/Friday night college football game lineups for the year.
On ESPN's front page there is an article or something called "Maintaining The Brand".
Pictures of USC and Bama helmets are on it.
Be prepared LSU fans. ESPN spent billions buying out CFB. This is what they want. If they could suspend the season today and have USC vs Bama in Miami in Jan, they would. It's all about the $$$.
